Volunteers at Cottage Lake
Volunteers are such an important part of our school community, assisting in the Main Office, Library, classroom spaces and beyond our learning community during field trips. A volunteer’s generous donation of time and talents enriches the school day experience, providing a helpful hand to staff and serving as mentors and models for our children. The volunteer training process is established in order to ensure that adults working within our community during the school day are approved to do so, having completed the Washington State background check, and talked with the building principal regarding expectations for interactions and protocols. The information provided is intended to help any volunteer hit the ground running, comfortable with all the options for volunteering and what to expect while on campus!
Starting November 1, 2022, proof of COVID-19 vaccination will no longer be required for Northshore School District volunteers. This District change is in response to Governor Inslee’s repeal of the COVID-19 emergency proclamations and state of emergency by Oct. 31, 2022.
All volunteers are asked to update their application yearly. One month before your application expires you will receive an email from email@example.com.
Notice: Since there are potential delays in processing volunteer applications, we advise all volunteers needing a Level 2 background check to submit their applications at least 3 weeks in advance, and Level 1 background checks at least 1 week in advance.
*Please ONLY use ONE EMAIL to apply to avoid duplicate accounts. Once you complete your application, please remember the email that you used so it is easier for school staff to locate your profile.
